TorGuard Now Supports OpenVPN 2.4

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We have upgraded all servers on our main network to support OpenVPN 2.4 - the TG Client does not yet support 2.4 but will do so in our next release. If you use any third party OpenVPN client that supports OpenVPN 2.4 then you are able to use "ahead" ciphers, all ciphers now supported are:


AES-128-GCM:AES-256-GCM:AES-256-CBC:AES-128-CBC:BF-CBC

It's worth noting that GCM based ciphers are much faster than CBC based ciphers and so those of you who use VPN routers with the latest openvpn 2.4 might want to start switching to our GCM based ciphers for a considerable boost in speed.

Sweet.  Any tutorials on how to enable these new ciphers on a router running Asuswrt-Merlin?  

 

Also any ETA on the next Android app update that will enable these?  Do you have a beta channel for the Android app?  I'd be into some testing.

We will update the guide shortly but you can generate configs using our openvpn config generator and import into your Asus openvpn client - you can just select the GCM ciphers on any port we provide now and they should work just fine.

Is BF-CBC enough security? I want to use it Because it is fast cipher
